Ankara will not allow German lawmakers to visit the Incirlik air base as long as Germany takes steps against Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday.

Two Weeks Or We're Out of Here: Berlin Hands Ankara Ultimatum Over Incirlik
ANKARA (Sputnik) Turkey blocked a group of German lawmakers from visiting the air base earlier in May prompting Chancellor Angela Merkel to suggest that Berlin may consider moving some 250 troops stationed at Incirlik to one of the neighboring countries.

"Germany negatively looks at Turkey, and now they say: 'We want to come to Incirlik'. Germany must understand that Turkey, which it can force to do what it wants, and to get what it wants from it, exists no longer. This remains in the past. In such conditions it is impossible to allow German parliamentarians to visit Incirlik. On Monday we will discuss this issue with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel," Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara.
